Community Photo Assignments


Every month, people like yourself will have the opportunity to train and challenge your eye with some photography. I will pick a prompt (usually a word or phrase provided from the community; something to theme an image) and you can go out there with your camera to see what you can capture with that phrase in mind!

April’s theme is “CLOUDS.” Interpret it as you wish! If people may not be able to figure out the connection between your photo and the theme, it might be a good idea to leave a one-to-two sentence description.


  • Please keep it to one photo. Spend time and effort picking your favorite.
  • Photos must be your own, and taken WITHIN the timeline of the challenge. No, you cannot use work you’ve previously shot.
  • Keep it SFW.
  • It is encouraged that you use a camera, like a DSLR of sorts - but pictures from devices like your phone’s camera are allowed!
  • Do not provide criticism unless the artist asks for it.
  • Have fun. :slight_smile:

I personally share photos on Flickr and 500px - it is a decent resource for sharing photos that are capable of retaining some quality and sharing meta data. Make sure you read their ToS before committing to a platform.


Could make it easy and go for computers.

Ehh, looking to challenge ourselves here. :slight_smile:

… two computers?


We could vote on a winner, and then submit it to the Cloud Appreciation Society.

Crime in action

This would be too easy in England.

Anyone opposed to clouds? Usually I like to have 'em be a little more vague but it’ll be a good start!

Big Round Bottoms

OP is updated - can’t wait to see what you all capture!


This photo is a storm forming in the south-west.

While it isn’t the center piece of the photo - it is hard to imagine the Columbia River gorge without clouds rolling through the hills and rain. :slight_smile: Better resolution here.

Edit: The forums cropped it! Grrr…


Great image Hutch :smiley_cat:
